Saluda’s Top of the Grade Summer Concert Series begins Friday, June 24 at McCreery Park in Saluda, with alt-country and honkytonk band Fancy and the Gentlemen from Asheville. Featuring rich harmonies and upright bass, fiddle, keys, pedal steel, drums, and Fancy Marie on lead vocals and guitar, Fancy and the Gentlemen perform down-home roots-style originals, and pay homage to the greats of country music from the 40s to the 80s.
The performance will be from 7- 9 p.m. on the Ella Grace Mintz stage. In case of heavy rain, bands will move to the pavilion in McCreery Park. Concert goers are encouraged to bring chairs and blankets. Coolers are welcome, and local restaurants are open.
The Top of the Grade Concert Series will also be presenting the Lazybirds on July 22 and Peggy Ratusz on August 26. The concerts are made possible through a generous community grant from Polk County Community Foundation and are coordinated by the Saluda Downtown Foundation and the City of Saluda. All concerts are free to the public.
